Thankful Thursday




Today I am thankful for so many things. I am thankful for meeting other Christian bloggers and thankful that the Lord uses us to help one another. Its great to meet other people with like struggles and you always bump into those who have been through so much more than you have. When you meet those people and see how they've handle their battle you learn that you have so much more growing to do and that you aren't as far along as you thought you were. To me that is always a wonderful revelation because then you are able to move deeper into your own relationship with God. You also realize that you are not alone. Sometimes the enemy wants to single you out and separate you from everything and everyone else so he can really come against you but the Lord is always opening doors and windows to allow us to see past the moment. This week I've had such sweet reminders of my God being in complete control. Complete control. Not the enemy but my sweet Father in Heaven, My Savior His Son Jesus Christ and the precious Holy Spirit. For this I am ever grateful and very thankful.

I'm also thankful for the rain! :) God bless you and have a blessed Thankful Thursday.

My online friends, 99% of whom I've never met in person and probably never will, are so dear and precious to me ... definitely a blessing from the Lord! You are so right about what a powerful impact it is to communicate with others who have traveled down the same road as you or are going through similar things as you at the same time. Have a blessed week ahead!

Hey girl! Excellent post. We need to learn from each other. So many times we try to do things on our own. And it doesn't work. We are the BODY of Christ...all working together for one purpose and all encouraging each other and spurring one another on in this race. Have a great weekend. Blessings.
